LARGE Fly Swap
This is only an idea and nothing definite BUT...
I would be looking for a number of tiers approaching 100 (a hundred). The swap will last for between 6 months and a year to allow MORE THAN AMPLE time for tying the flies - remember - that is only 2 flies a week, or maybe 4 if 6 months.
I have taken part in a caddis swap with 100 participants. We managed to get fly boxes made up specially for it with the name of the fly swap on it and the year etc etc - they are really nice to keep and to refer to.
The rules would be that only one person can tie 1 pattern - i.e. I dont want 2 people tying a Diawl Bach for example.
What I want to know at this stage is
(a) who is interested in theory
(b) does the idea of a fly box interest you (additional costs?)
(c) what theme for the flies do we want?
(d) how long to tie the flies?
Let me know if interested
